Meet the Author

In 1944, a country vicar, the Reverend W Awdry, wrote the stories he had been telling his two young sons about a group of engines with very recognizable personalities. In 1945, the first book featuring Thomas and the other Really Useful Engines was published, and in the 60 years since, the tales of these friendly engines have become beloved classics around the world.

    Suffers from lack of NookKids format

    Unlike some other Thomas titles, this one is in standard vertical Nook format. That means small images, no pinch-and-zoom, and an unfortunate amount of wasted white space on the pages. Small pictures just don't cut it with a toddler.

    my kids love it!

    my kids are ages three and five. They loved this story because it involved something you don't usually associate with trains, a shark and an octopus. This is fun and easy to read. My five year old was able to pick out some of the words.

    Thomas the Train is always a hit

    It's easy to read, not too wordy, so easy to read over and over. If your Thomas the Train fan is like mine, you will have to read it many times so this is important.

    more from this reviewer

    Good conversation starter

    Not only does the story have some good messages about work, haste, consideration of others and having accidents, it also introduces some marine life, a dock setting, and the work that goes on there.
